Hornsea Project Three Offshore Wind Farm

Received 22 July 2018
From Mr C Carter

Representation

(1) Concern re. the proposed positioning of the HVDC Converter / HVAC Substation in a completely different site instead of adjoining the Norwich Main National Grid Substation for the Norwich area, which has easy access from the main A140 Norwich to Ipswich Road. The proposed siting is adjacent to a country "B" road, and would therefore necessitate numerous HGV movements during the construction phase on this local road.

(2) The height of the proposed HVDC Converter / HVAC Substation would dominate the surrounding areas and could lead to an industrial complex in a country area, instead of siting it adjoining the Norwich Main National Grid Substation which already has mature screening masking it from the surroundings.
